European Tour adds Joburg Open

The second edition of the Joburg Open has been added to the 2007-08 European Tour schedule.

The 1.1 million euro ($1.61 million) tournament will be played at the Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club from Jan. 10-13, the tour said on its official Web site on Wednesday.

Argentina's Ariel Canete won the inaugural Joburg Open earlier this year and will return to South Africa to defend his title.

The Joburg Open will be the third event jointly sanctioned by the European and Sunshine tours on the 2007-08 schedule, following next month's Alfred Dunhill Championship in Mpumalanga and the South African Open in Paarl.

A total of 51 of the 53 tournaments on the 2007-08 European Tour schedule will count towards the order of merit.

The only non-counting events are the Ryder Cup and the World Cup.
